Prince Edward Island Draw – 24 June 2024

The Canadian province of PEI has held a draw after more than a month. Since its last draw on 2nd May, PEI PNP’s next draw was held on 24 June.

The total invites were 75 and all of them were issued to candidates to apply to the Labour and Express Entry category. Though there was no score requirement, candidates still had to meet the following criteria:

  • Invitations were issued to individuals in the Healthcare and Construction sectors, and
  • those with Work Permits in the Tourism, Agriculture, Fisheries and Trucking, and Transport (the work permits must be expiring before October)

This draw brought a considerable change from the previous pattern of PEI PNP draws which usually followed its anticipated draw pattern already listed out by the province. The draw that was conducted on Wednesday actually was supposed to be held a week before, on 20th June, Thursday. 

However, this wasn’t the first time such a case has happened. Actually, PEI PNP was also supposed to hold a draw on 16th May but it did not issue any invitations. 

So, if PEI is deviating from its usual pattern of conducting draws, we might see such unusual activities happening again in future.
